Practical Kitchen Decorating: Cambridge

Oct 24, 2013

Kitchens are so much more than simply a place to cook and prepare food, but rather a gathering place for people to eat, drink, and be merry. Timbercreek has some great suggestions for ways to spruce up your kitchen while saving precious space. Our apartments in Cambridge provide the perfect gathering space for entertaining friends and family.

1) Think outside the box (or in this case the cabinet)
Why not show off your pots and pans with hanging storage? This is an easy way to free up cabinet space while still adding character and whimsy to your kitchen. This storage technique also makes it much easier to find the right pot for the right dish. In addition to your pots and pans, there are many creative ways of storing dishes and utensils on the wall, freeing up precious drawer space. The Cambridge Centre Mall located only 1 kilometer away from our 204 Hespeler Road apartments features stores such as Target, Sears, Stokes Kitchenware, and The Bay for all of your decorating and appliance needs.

 2) Let there be light
An easy way to create the illusion of more kitchen space is with great lighting. A simple way to do this is with down lighters or under cabinet lighting that is both practical for when you are cooking and also makes the space appear brighter and larger. The best way to open up your kitchen space is with natural light, so let the light in with sheer curtains or a few well-placed mirrors.

3) Sometimes less is more
The best, cheapest, and easiest way to create space in your kitchen is to simply reduce your clutter and create open shelving. Ensure that you are thinking practically when it comes to accessorizing your kitchen so that the décor doesn’t interfere with your cooking space. With your clutter-free kitchen you will have the freedom to cook big delicious meals for your friends and family. FreshCO and Zehrs grocery stores are conveniently located within walking distance and have all the necessary ingredients you could possibly need.
